SEA SALT | Natural
Fleur de sel is created through a fluke of nature. Many elements have to occur at the same time, and it happens only in a few places in the world. We are fortunate that the ocean surrounding Salt spring Island has all the natural elements for a perfectly flaky fleur de sel.
Fleur de sel is the purest form of salt you can get as it contains absolutely no gypsum or other impurities from the sea. Unlike a standard sea salt, fleur de sel is a crystal, not a grain. It has a milder, less bitter flavour and a smoother melt-in-your-mouth feeling. It melts slowly on the tongue and provides a delicious crunch as it enhances the flavour of the food. Chefs worldwide consider it to be the crème de la crème of salts.
Our sewing facilities are located in Vancouver, B.C. We love having them so close to home. Producing locally means we stay connected to the lifecycle of our garments, and the people who make them.
We can visit the facilities any time we need to and have cultivated close relationships with the people responsible for making our clothes. We are a people-first brand and we feel good knowing that our products are produced ethically in facilities that value their employees. We value them too!
Navigating the textile world is tricky. It’s not currently set up for the most sustainable of supply chains. We are working all the time to find better ways to approach production and make the best choices we can. In the end, our hope is that every one of our pieces creates meaningful conversation around minimizing our environmental impact and keeping our Oceans cleaner. This is how we plan to be a part of lasting change leading us towards a more conscious future.
Naturals and neutrals are the cornerstones of our design method. We apply this to our clothing line because we want you to build a wardrobe that will last. We prefer clean lines, quality fabrics, and a neutral palette that you can mix together over and over embracing a collection that meets the slow fashion movement.
Purchases are intentional when guided by the belief that we really can have more from less. And you’re doing the planet a big favour; by choosing long-lasting, natural fibres, you will be contributing less to landfills and supporting more sustainable production practices, keeping our Earth cleaner and less cluttered.
